First Five was providing vision exams in conjunction with Tzu Chi for preschoolers in Chowchilla and Madera. We  scheduling with First Five and Tzu Chi in Oakhurst. Within the hour, they examined the 1st child, made his glasses, gave the glasses and a prescription to him so he could get replacement glasses for 2 years. The cost of the mobile services and the child's glasses were cover by First Five. The club reviewed and approved supplying vison exams for 3 local children (2 referred by our Spot Vison checks at HeadStart in Eastern Madera County, and local 2nd grader). All 3 would be supplied with glasses from our local optometrist, Lion member Dr. Ras.

We Serve...Sierra Lions Club, Oakhurst CA   -   By Ginger Foust   -   August 13, 2009

"This July our club participated in the annual "camperships" at Camp Pacifica just north of Oakhurst.  The camp facility is a Lions facility and is supported by many regional clubs.  During the week of our participation 135 deaf teens and their counselors spent time bonding and enjoying their time in our beautiful Sierra Mountains.  Lions club volunteers flew in teens from across the US for this experience. 

Our job was to feed the campers and counselors three times during their weeks stay, plus tranport them to and from camp from the airport.  

It was a very quiet dining room at lunch and dinner until the boom box was turned up FULL blast so that they could "feel the beat".  We had a great time and the teens were very respectful and appreciative."
